Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth. Porcelain veneers are made from materials that mimic the appearance of natural enamel on your teeth. Because the veneer mimics the appearance of enamel, each one is designed differently for each person and tooth. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of porcelain veneers from your dentist in Ft Lauderdale.
Unlike composite resin, porcelain veneers are more durable and require less maintenance. Porcelain veneers can last anywhere from 12 to 25 years and outside of basic oral hygiene, there is little to no upkeep required. You can even continue to eat all your favorite foods.
Porcelain veneers can solve many dental problems all at the same time, such as misaligned teeth, discoloration, and cracked teeth. This is one of the biggest and most significant advantages of them. They can also help protect your teeth and help improve function.
Because porcelain veneers allow you to quickly and effectively correct minor dental problems with your teeth, they can be a great alternative to braces. With the large time commitment and investment with braces, veneers are sometimes referred to as instant orthodontics.
All your veneers will be matched to a bright, natural color that will make all your teeth, even the natural ones, look more white. The non-porous surface of porcelain veneers also helps protect against future stains.
